COTLI: Alien Invasion Day 5! 

    "Today, in the most dire of times, we Crusaders choose not only to believe in ourselves, but in each other. Today we face the aliens at our doors once again. Today, we take the fight to them. No Crusader stands alone. Today, we cancel another apocalypse."

    ~President Billy Smithsonian



Alien Invasion Day 5 has arrived, bringing with it the cybernetic alien monarch, Queen Ysjorgnak. This year's event runs until Wednesday, July 15th at 12PM Pacific, introducing Queen Ysjorgnak and bringing back Xygallix, the Alien Mechanic, First Lady Betty Smithsonian, Red, the Ace Pilot, Slisiblyp, the Alien Scientist, Kizlblyp, the Alien Traitor, and President Billy Smithsonian!


New Tier 5 Crusader: Queen Ysjorgnak

Tags: event, female, alien, royal, robot, support


Little is known of Queen Ysjorgnak. She is the monarch at the head of a vast interstellar civilization. Legends say that the Queen was augmented after suffering mortal wounds in a battle at some distant star, and that now much of her body has been replaced by cybernetic enhancements. She is now as much artificial as she is organic...


New Tier 5 Objectives

  • Recruit Queen Ysjorgnak | Queen Ysjorgnak takes up a slot in the formation. Only Alien Crusaders do DPS.
    Reach area 400.

  • Speedster Racing | Only Crusaders with speed enhancing upgrades do DPS.

COTLI: Introducing The Dungeons & The Crypt 

Hail Crusaders!

You may have heard whispers about "uncapped objectives" swirling around this year and wondered what they were. Well, wonder no more! It's time to descend into The Dungeons!


Welcome to The Dungeons

What are the Dungeons you might ask? Well, it's a set of 10 new objectives for you to enjoy, with a major bonus: no maximum DPS cap! That's right, you can now see how far your formation building will take you without running into an invisible wall! The Dungeons are available to try once you've completed the From the Ashes Tier 3 Objective in the Mischief at Mugwarts campaign.

These objectives come with all-new formations that range from 12 to 15(!) spots to place your Crusaders, challenging you ascend to new heights while expanding your creativity. And getting deeper into these objectives is good, as it will net you more rewards in the form of Dungeon Coins, an all-new currency arriving with this update. Dungeon Coins can be spent on various items in the new Dungeon Coin shop, The Dungeon Depot, helping you gain even more additional power to push your formations even further.


10 New Formations

We wanted to give you a brief introduction to the 10 new formations, so without further ado, here they are!



Playing it Old School

This formation will look familiar to most players, as it's a take on Ready Player Two with the bottom spot of the middle column removed, leaving it with 13 spots for you to build your formation with. But we have faith you can make it work!



Free for All

This formation features two columns of 4 Crusaders each for you to experiment with, as you build a formation that works with the 12 spots you have available.



Fun and Games

Two columns of 4 again, but with different adjacent spots for the center two spots and the extra front spot gives you some more variety in this formation of 13 Crusaders.



Under Fire

Another riff on the Ready Player Two formation, but this time with the center 2 spots having more adjacent spots than in the original.



Sunday Stroll

Another 13 spot formation for you to try out, starting big on the outside and going in to the lone center spot. How far can this formation take you?



Dark Dwellers

14 spots for you to play with in this N-shaped formation, featuring 3 columns of 4 Crusaders each and a couple Mindy friendly spots, but those two solo spot columns might prove tricky to craft around.



Making Waves

The first 15 spot formation of the new formations. Ride the wave as you make this formation work.



Jungle Journey

Another 15 spot formation, with columns of 4 and more of your Crusaders clustered together. We're excited to see how you can take advantage of this shape to push as far as you can.



Achieve Flight

With 14 spots and a column of 4, this evil eye formation might not be so evil after all, especially with its Mindy friendly spots.



Dungeon Crawl

The final new formation is also 14 spots for you to fill, with yet another column of 4, flanked by columns of two and bounded by columns of 3 Crusaders.


We hope you enjoy busting out your formation crafting with these new formations!


New Rotating Buff System

But we can hear you ask, why would I do any objective other than the ones with the excellent 15 spot formations?

Good question player! Well, the Dungeons also feature a rotating buff system. So of the 10 objectives, 3 will be assigned a buff to give you a bonus for doing that objective. The buffs will rotate to 3 different objectives every time you reset the world off of an objective in The Dungeons. So you can benefit from doing an objective with a smaller formation if you do it while it has the buff that you currently want.

The three buffs that will rotate are:
  • Bonus Idols - Gain anywhere from 0.01% of your current total Idols at the time you reset the world, up to 3% depending on how deep you get before resetting the world on an objective when it has this buff. Ka-ching!

  • Bonus Dungeon Coins - Gain 10% more Dungeon Coins from this reset when you choose an objective that has this buff. Dungeonlicious!

  • Bonus Dungeon Points! - Gain 10% more Dungeon points from this reset when you choose an objective that has this buff. Cryptastic!
Dungeon points, you ask? Let's continue on to the next section.


New Season: The Crypt

The Dungeons update will also introduce our new 'Seasons' mechanic to the game and our first season: The Crypt! Complete the whole season and in addition to the in-game achievement for beating it, you'll unlock our adorable new Crypt-themed taskmaster, Li'l Reaper.




So what's the short and long of it?

  • If you have access to the Dungeons objectives, you can participate in the season.


  • You have 12 weeks to earn enough Dungeon Points to clear all 25 levels and earn all the prizes, including Li'l Reaper.


  • For our first season, The Crypt, Dungeon points are only earned from completing objectives in the Dungeons.


  • The deeper you go on an objective, the more points you get.


  • You can do 15 objectives for Dungeon points a week for free, letting you choose when you can invest your time in earning those points.


  • If you need additional runs to earn your Dungeon points, you can spend Dungeon Coins in the Dungeon Depot to access additional runs for the week.




Want even more goodies than you can earn for free? You can support Crusaders by purchasing the Mysterious Benefactor's pass at any time. You'll immediately be able to claim any premium rewards you've already unlocked and you'll be able to claim the others as you meet the season goals.

We're looking forward to your feedback on this new addition to Crusaders! Get your delving on!



F.A.Q. for Dungeons and The Crypt Season

  • Q: What are the Dungeon objectives?

    A: They are a series of new objectives for you to test your mettle against. The maximum number cap has been removed, so you can go as far as your heart desires and see what your true DPS is in these all-new formations.


  • Q: How do I access the Dungeons objectives?

    A: Once you've completed the Tier 3 Objective From the Ashes in the Mischief at Mugwarts campaign, objectives for The Dungeons will become available from the campaign selection screen.


  • Q: Why no bonus boss Idol drops?

    A: Because the bonus boss Idols drops are based on the areas reached and the maximum number cap has been removed for these objectives.


  • Q: Will I get progress towards my Free Play Bonus by doing these objectives?

    A: No, these objectives do not count towards that bonus, as these are special types of objectives and that bonus is for rotating through the free plays on the permanent themed campaigns.


  • Q: What do I get from doing the Dungeons objectives?

    A: You get the all-new Dungeon Coins to purchase items from the new Dungeon shop; and Dungeon points for the current season. The debut season is The Crypt.


  • Q: Can I only do these objectives once?

    A: No, you can do each objective multiple times. The only limit is your weekly allowance of runs.


  • Q: How do I see my season progress?

    A: You can click on the all-new Dungeons button on the Rosette tab at the bottom of the screen, the one with your Achievements, Stats and Challenges information.


  • Q: Why is the season geared towards veterans? How can I make progress?

    A: The season is meant to be additional end game content, but we still want mid level players to have access to the dungeon objectives. You can still earn points, especially if you take advantage of the buff that gives more Dungeon Points from a reset. You do also have the twelve weeks to try and get up into the higher echelon of power, and you can purchase extra runs for Dungeon Coins in the later weeks if you've managed to raise your power levels by then.


  • Q: What happens if I can't complete the first season?

    A: The top prize for the season will become available for Dungeon Coins in the Dungeon Coin store a few weeks after the season completes.


  • Q: Do I have to claim the rewards right when I unlock them?

    A: No, you can wait to claim them until you're ready to use them. However, if the season has ended, any unclaimed rewards will automatically be claimed at the end. Rewards will be awarded if you are in the game when the season ends, or the next time you log in if your game is closed when the season ends.


  • Q: If I purchased the Mysterious Benefactor's pass during the previous season, do I get the rewards in the current season?

    A: No, but you keep all of the permanent rewards you've earned from the old season.


  • Q: How do I buy the Mysterious Benefactor's pass?

    A:
    • Launch Crusaders of the Lost Idols.
    • Navigate to the current season's dialog.
    • Click on the purchase button.
    • Benefit!


  • Q: What if I buy the Mysterious Benefactor's pass late in the season?

    A: You will receive all of the rewards up to your current level, retroactively, and you can claim them at any time after you've purchased the pass.


  • Q: What happens when the season ends?

    A: All the rewards you haven't claimed yet will be auto-claimed.

    If you are currently on a dungeon objective that would get you points for the season, those points will be applied to the new season once you reset that objective.

COTLI: Song of Thrones 5! 

Seasons change and winters pass, as songs begin to fade,
Monsters skulk trying to hide, a hunter to evade,
Thrones forgotten in the past, their legacies betrayed,
A hybrid dragon stalks her prey with justice as her blade.


A Song of Thrones 5 has arrived, bringing with it the hunter of monsters, Imani Saskien. This year's event runs until Tuesday, June 23rd at 12PM Pacific, introducing Imani Saskien and bringing back Holddoor, The Wolf King, RoboQueen, Zombie Winter, Leerion, the Royal Dwarf, and Brogon, Prince of Dragons!

New Tier 5 Crusader: Imani Saskien

Tags: event, female, dragon, human, magical, support


When you wish to hunt monsters, you need an expert to guide you. Imani Saskien has been tracking and slaying monsters her whole life. Thanks to her unique physiology as a half-human and half-dragon mutant hybrid, she is also incredibly well suited to her profession.

Imani's Basic Scouting and Helpful Potions increase the damage of all Crusaders in the formation, while her connection with Special Kin further boosts DPS for each Dragon tag in the formation. If you happen to have Imani adjacent to Gold Find Crusaders, A Fine Reward increases DPS for each one of them, stacking multiplicatively.

There is a 33% chance that any monster spawned is Marked For Death by Imani, becoming poisoned. Monsters that have been poisoned take ten times more damage from DPS and fifty(!) times more damage from Click Damage. The chances of Marked For Death successfully poisoning enemies is increased by 2% for every Magical Crusader in the formation once you unlock Imani's Spell Practice ability.

Finally, Trusty Mount increases DPS for every Animal tag in the formation, stacking additively.

New Tier 5 Objectives

  • Recruit Imani Saskien | Imani Saskien takes up a slot in the formation. Magical Crusaders in the formation have their upgrades and DPS disabled. Crusaders take damage over time. Healing abilities. Invulnerable Dragon monsters spawn that will instantly kill a Crusader and themselves. When a dragon dies, Imani heals the remainder of the formation to full health. Monsters attack Imani last.
    Reach area 400.

  • Hot Potato Crown | Only Royal Crusaders may be used. Difficulty is increased. Four spots in the formation have random buffs and debuffs; affected formation spots change every 50 areas.
    Reach area 450.

  • Set Dressing | Area quests replaced by the need to find 3 coffee cups. Coffee cups have a much lower drop rate than standard quests.
    Reach area 475.

  • Well-Lit Night Scene | A brazier takes up a slot in the formation. Experience is gained at a fixed rate, and causes Crusaders to deal less damage. Crusaders adjacent to the brazier become exhausted at a slower rate than Crusaders in the dark. The brazier moves every 50 areas.
    Reach area 500.

  • New Show in Town | A minstrel occupies a slot in formation and sings annoying music. Crusaders adjacent to the minstrel are fully disabled; Crusaders two spots away from the minstrel do zero DPS. Your gold bonus is equal to 300% times the number of Crusaders in the formation. Monster difficulty scales slower compared to other Tier 5 event objectives.
    Reach area 525.

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Thrones Chests, which you can earn from objectives and the free play or buy in the shop. Each non-recruitment objective will drop a chest for its given tier of Crusaders, and free play will drop All Tier chests. Gear for Tier 2, Tier 3, Tier 4 and Tier 5 Crusaders will only appear in All Tier chests once you've unlocked the respective Crusaders. You can select the tier of chest you buy in the shop when you go to purchase chests with real money or event currency.

COTLI: The Hidden Temple 5! 

Guarding a tomb for all time might sound like an eternity of peace and quiet, but eventually some random Crusader will show up, interrupting your slumber.

On yet another daring excursion, Montana James finds himself face-to-face with a colossal stone behemoth carved in the shape of a Tyrannosaurus, with massive glowing crystals sprouting from it's back.

Luckily for Montana, Ichtaca, the Keeper has grown bored of their role of tomb guardian, and is eager to head out on an adventure.

It's time for another Trek Through the Hidden Temple! The Hidden Temple 5 runs until Tuesday, June 2nd at 12PM PDT, introducing Ichtaca, the Keeper and bringing back Kebos, The Mummy, The Holy Guardian, Polly the Parrot, Danni the Daring Damsel, Serpent King Draco, and Montana James!


New Tier 5 Crusader: Ichtaca, the Keeper

Ichtaca, the Keeper is a Crusader who specializes in boosting the potency of Orc, Supernatural, and Support-tagged Crusaders.

Mesozoic Born and Riddles and Keys boost Supernatural and Support Crusaders respectively. If your formation has any Orc Crusaders, Earthen Family will increase the DPS of Crusaders by 50% per each Orc tag in the formation.

Other upgrades include Good Stone (Increases the DPS of all Crusaders by 75%), Eternal Guardian (For every 25 levels over and including 200, DPS is multiplied by 4x), and Crystalline Veins (Increase all Gold found by 100%).

Ichtaca's final ability is Extinction Level Event, which buffs Mesozoic Born and Riddles and Keys by 100%.


New Tier 5 Objectives

  • Recruit Ichtaca, the Keeper | Ichtaca, the Keeper takes up a slot in the formation. Spawn speed buffs and effects have no effect. Ichtaca, the Keeper steals 75% of your quest item drops. The Phase Skip talent doesn't apply.
    Reach area 400.

  • Second Best | Only the second Crusader on each bench seat is available.
    Reach area 450.

  • Cruise the Nile | Area quest requirements are increased by 10 fold. If you kill a monster that a Crusader has slowed, stunned or frozen, they drop 5 times as many quest items. Montana James starts in the formation and is the only Crusader who does DPS.
    Reach area 475.

  • Sahara Bound | Try to stay hydrated! Each area starts with a supply of 15 water bottles. Additional water bottles will drop from killed monsters at random. 1 water bottle is consumed every 5 seconds for each Crusader in the formation. If you run out of water, the formation wipes and goes back an area. Covetous camelcorns attack the formation and cannot be killed.
    Reach area 500.

  • Meteor Powered Portal | A goop monster takes up a spot in formation, moving every 100 areas. Crusaders adjacent to the goop have their formation abilities weakened. Additionally, every two minutes, a meteor hits your formation, removing a Crusader from formation and making them unusable for the next 15 minutes.
    Reach area 525.

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Hidden Temple Chests, which you can earn from objectives and the free play or buy in the shop. Each non-recruitment objective will drop a chest for its given tier of Crusaders, and free play will drop All Tier chests. Gear for Tier 2, Tier 3, Tier 4 and Tier 5 Crusaders will only appear in All Tier chests once you've unlocked the respective Crusaders. You can select the tier of chest you buy in the shop when you go to purchase chests with real money or event currency.

COTLI: Gardeners of the Galaxy 5! 

Unrelenting alien plants return, and it's up to the Gardeners of the Galaxy to stop them. It's time for a new strategy. You've fought plants with fungus, but what about fighting plants with other plants?

Enter Drosenthes, a new Crusader bringing the power of photosynthesis to your formation!

Gardeners of the Galaxy 5 runs until Tuesday, May 12th at 12PM PDT, introducing Drosenthes and bringing back Mycall the Mushroom, Rex the Wrestler, Grandmora, Spaceking, Broot, and Robbie Raccoon!


New Tier 5 Crusader: Drosenthes

Growing... consuming... Drosenthes has germinated in the beyond and brings with it a unique symbiotic relationship for the Crusaders in your formation.

Slow Digestion grants a charge for every 5 monsters killed, stacking up to 10. Once per second, if any Crusader is below 50% health, Slow Digestion consumes one stack to heal all Crusaders for 50% of their total health. This pairs with Induced Bioluminescence, which damages human and animal Crusaders for 10% of their maximum health each second while at the same time increasing Global DPS for every human and animal Crusader, stacking multiplicatively.

Drostenthes offers unique utility to your formation:
  • Endless Hunger spawns an additional monsters based on the number of monsters killed and Drosenthes' equipment.
  • Photosynthesis increases DPS for every 25 levels over and including 200.
  • Patient Hunter increases the drop rate of Quest Items.
  • Cosmic Botany increases the DPS from Induced Bioluminescence for each Flora Crusader in the formation.
  • Entomophage helps your formation to grow, boosting Global DPS.
Life, death, rebirth. Devour or be devoured. The cycle of life is embodied in no other Crusader the way it is in Drosenthes.


New Tier 5 Objectives

  • Recruit Drosenthes | Drosenthes starts in the formation. Monsters spawn slower. Monsters are much tougher. Monsters move across the screen slower.
    Reach area 400.

  • Gardeners, Grow! | Talent effects are disabled. Only Gardeners of the Galaxy Crusaders can be used. Grandmora starts in the formation.
    Reach area 450.

  • Planet Bulk | Special bulk monsters spawn, and randomly disable one Crusader in your formation while the bulk monster is alive.
    Reach area 475.

  • Willowy Willows | Only Flora and Dragon Crusaders, plus Slot 1 Crusaders, can be used. Special Willow tree monsters spawn, with random effects.
    Reach area 500.

  • Hard Labor | Area difficulty increases rapidly. Crusaders take 10% of their max HP as damage for each monster killed in an area. Crusaders in the center column of the formation have their DPS and formation abilities disabled.
    Reach area 750.

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Gardeners Chests, which you can earn from objectives and the free play or buy in the shop. Each non-recruitment objective will drop a chest for its given tier of Crusaders, and free play will drop All Tier chests. Gear for Tier 2, Tier 3, Tier 4 and Tier 5 Crusaders will only appear in All Tier chests once you've unlocked the respective Crusaders.

COTLI: Dev Blog: All Tier Easter Jeweled Chests 

Hail Crusaders,

On Monday morning we were made aware of an issue affecting All Tier Easter Jeweled chests. From the launch of the event on Thursday until Monday at 11am PT, the All Tier Easter Jeweled chests did not have the ability to drop gear for the new Tier 5 Crusader Dr. Almquist. This issue was fixed shortly after we received the reports.

While the number of affected players was very very low, and many players who opened the chests would not have missed out on any contents at all, we feel that some compensation would be fair. Therefore, anyone who opened these chests during the time period they were bugged will receive additional free All Tier Easter Jeweled chests based on the number of these chests they opened (at a rate of 1 compensation chest for every 4 chests opened). Affected players will receive these chests the next time they reload the game or start a new objective.

We would like to extend our thanks to the players who reported this issue as soon as they noticed it.

COTLI: Nate's Candy Conundrum 5! 

Demonic sweets once again threaten the Crusaders, as they hop into yet-another parallel universe beset by evil Easter candy.

Who better to help fight evil candy than a dentist? Dr. Almquist, Tusk Specialist is here to help bring his unique blend of buffs to your formation -- welcome to Nate's Candy Conundrum 5!

This year's event runs until Tuesday, April 21st at 12PM PDT, introducing Dr. Almquist, Tusk Specialist and bringing back Bridget the Painter, Biff the Magic Rabbit, Baenarall, Angel of Hope, Sisaron the Dragon Sorceress, Alan the ArchAngel, and RoboRabbit!

New Tier 5 Crusader: Dr. Almquist, Tusk Specialist

Dental problem got you down? Dr. Almquist, Tusk Specialist is here to help! This orc may be a specialist when it comes to tusks, but tusks are just overgrown teeth, right? That's totally the same thing.

Dr Almquist increases Global DPS for each Evil Crusader with his Laughing Gas, and brings Ceiling Protectors to give an overall boost to Global DPS for the formation.

When Dr. Almquist performs a Wisdom Extraction, the first boss kills in an area will drop decayed teeth, which provide a stacking Global DPS increase that persists through adventures. Topical Numbing increases the chances for these teeth to drop.

With Tusk Sharpening Dr. Almquist increases DPS every 25 levels over and including area 200, and when there are Gold Fillings, Dr. Almquist increases Gold Find for each stack of Wisdom Extraction!

New Tier 5 Objectives

  • Recruit Dr. Almquist, Tusk Specialist | Dr. Almquist, Tusk Specialist takes up a slot int he formation. There must be an equal number of Orc and non-Orc Crusaders in the formation (+/- 1).
    Reach area 400.

  • Easter Lilies | A lily collector occupies a slot in the formation. She gives monsters a chance to drop lilies when they are defeated. For every lily collected, she increases the DPS of all the Crusaders.
    Reach area 475.

  • Resurrection | A strange Easter Bunny occupies the center slot in the formation. The Easter Bunny spawns increasingly large waves of monsters in each area. Reach area 500.

  • Greet the Sunrise | Sun monsters attack the formation. When killed, they either buff your Gold or your DPS.
    Reach area 525.
